System Solution Opportunities of Hydrodynamic and Roller Element Bearings. An Engineering Approach Based on the Benefits and Limitations of Both Technologies

Miba will present an engineering initiative to choose the overall optimal bearing solution for any system requirement specification. Based on an easy to apply and transparent process flow highlighting potentials, limitations, and particular advantages of the two bearing types, the route to a novel engineering tool will be presented allowing engineers a fact based and fast choice of the bearing type in the early development stage.
